Flaminmoneybags is quickly turning into the ideal syndicate greyhound.

A dog that knows his job, has tremendous early speed and is always hard to pass.

He also has the winning habit and that was very evident on Friday evening as he landed the feature at Shelbourne Park, the This Runs Deep A1 decider, adding a further €3,000 to his impressive career earnings.

Owned by the Two Laois, Four Kilkenny Syndicate, the son of Laughil Blake and Killaheen Queen was installed the odds-on favourite following the withdrawal of the likely favourite Spinosaurus and he seized his opportunity with all four paws.

Making a flying exit from the inside box, defeat never looked likely. Ropewalk Damsel was never too far back in second but could never bridge the gap. Jirano Supreme did run on well to grab second spot but Flaminmoneybags gallopd all the way to the line to score by three lengths in a rapid 28.56.

In victory, the October ’19 whelp brought his career earnings to almost €8,000. It’s clear, given his running style, he will be adding plenty to that sum in the coming months.
